How Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) Works
Your body can heal itself! In fact, your body starts healing itself right after you get injured and it's the blood in your body that makes it all happen.
Your blood is the transport mechanism for everything that's good inside you. It carries oxygen, nutrients, water and antibodies.
Proper blood flow in your foot is critical for complete tissue healing. Unfortunately, when you injure your foot you stop moving and the swelling sets in. That means your blood flow can be reduced to a trickle. If your foot doesn't have enough blood flow the whole healing process will slow down!
If you want to heal quickly, you need to get rid of swelling and inflammation AND THEN keep your blood moving with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™ (BFST®).
I'll seem weird for you to read this, but there are a LOT of people out there that don't understand how fast cold compression with a Plantar Freezie Wrap® can get the swelling / inflammation in your foot under control fast! After you get rid of the swelling for good you can start dealing with your foot injury and pain head on.
This is where the Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™ (BFST®) effect from a Plantar/Spur Inferno Wrap® really starts to shine!
The MISSING Piece of the Puzzle....
where SO MANY get it WRONG!
Swelling and inflammation is how your body reacts to an injury. A lot of pain will probably disappear when the swelling disappears, and many people feel that their plantar fasciitis must be healed as soon as most of the pain is gone. This is where so many get it wrong. Even after you've gotten rid of the swelling with cold compression, your injury is still there.
This is a critical time! When your swelling inflammation is gone it might feel like you can return to your activities including your job and any sports you play - but your foot is in a weakened state, unstable, and prone to re-injury. Even the smallest amount of weight placed on your foot, a change in the shoes that you wear or a twist in the wrong direction can worsen the injury and start the swelling all over again. Most "weekend warriors" and amateur athletes will start going back to what they were doing before they injured themselves, and that's where they get it wrong.
Medical professionals (doctors, nurses, physical therapists, surgeons) know that the injury is still there, even if the pain is gone. Building strong healthy tissue is part of the healing process and needs to be dealt with first!
BFST® - Accelerated Healing Power for Your Plantar Injury
If you want to heal quickly, you need to keep your blood moving and that's where Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™(BFST®), comes in.
What is BFST®? It's a substantial increase in the flow of blood to the damaged ligament in your foot (the plantar fascia) without the need to exercise your already injured foot. This is what the Plantar/Spur Inferno Wrap® does... you can really feel it work!
Have you seen what happens when you add water to a flower wilted from a drought? A foot injury (plantar fasciitis) is much like a "wilted" flower... Your body wants to heal the injury, but needs lots of nutrients to do it.
Blood brings new life to your damaged cells by delivering healing nutrients and oxygen that are important to heal your tissue. Increased blood flow will also get rid of toxins and cellular waste, cleaning the area and healing it faster. Your injury won't heal properly without enough blood flow!
To get maximum blood flow to your injured foot, you need to help your body stimulate blood flow. BFST® (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™), is the fast, easy and pain-free way to increase blood flow and speed healing. It's the key to dealing with the damaged tissue in your foot.
Soon after of applying a Plantar/Spur Inferno Wrap® to your sprained foot, you can feel the healing sensation and the increase in blood flow.
During a treatment, and for quite some time after you finish, your injured tissue will experience increased blood flow even though your body is at rest. It's a soothing sensation and extremely effective.
With BFST® your plantar fascia or other foot injury is constantly being fed with healing, nutritious, oxygen and energy filled blood. This is exactly what your body needs to heal.
Inferno Wrap = The Perfect BFST® Delivery Tool
How An Inferno Wrap® Works
An Inferno Wrap® is purely a BFST® workhorse! It's why we made them. They've been specifically designed for the treatment of deep, soft tissue injuries.
Inferno Wraps® contain a patented Energy Web® that's flexible and shaped specifically to conform around the bottom of your foot. This Energy Web® provides a uniform wave of healing electromagnetic energy over the entire treatment area. This energy travels down deep inside your foot - into the plantar fascia and major tendons at the bottom of your feet. This energy also stimulates the blood flow needed to heal your injury. It's the electromagnetic energy that's crucial to the healing process.
The unit plugs into a wall outlet to get its power. It has a special signal controller that can be set for 3 different power levels of application (3=High, 2=Medium, 1=Low). The cord is long so you can sit or lie comfortably and watch TV, read or surf the net while you are using it. There is no sound or vibration or motion that comes from the unit. There are no creams or gels required, you simply wrap it snugly around your injury and turn it on. It is very easy to use.
Inferno Wrap - The Secret to Accelerated Healing
Electromagnetic energy waves aren't Heat Waves. They're lower level energy waves that penetrate right through your skin and fat layers until they get to your plantar fascia. After electromagnetic energy is absorbed by your tissue it transforms into a soothing warmth sensation Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™. That's Healing Power - Right at the Location of the Injury.
Now, what happens then? The Inferno Wrap® increases blood flow at the source your foot pain - period. It's the only flexible, therapeutic wrap and it is patented technology you won't find anywhere else!
You'll experience a warming sensation as the treatment progresses (and the electromagnetic energy waves penetrate into your foot) - This is what provides the healing power.
With regular use of the Plantar/Spur Inferno Wrap®:
- Your pain will be reduced.
- Your damaged tissue will heal at an accelerated rate while reducing your risk of re-injury.
- Your foot will have a larger range of motion and increased extensibility of collagen tissue. (Chapter 9 of "Therapeutic Heat and Cold", 4th edition. (amazon.com link) Ed. Justus F. Lehmann, M.D., Williams, and Wilkin)
My Physical Therapist Encourages Me to Use My Plantar Inferno
I had a very painful torn plantar fascia where it inserts into the heal. Basically I twisted my foot coming down the steps and then had to downsize from a larger house to a smaller house. I was on my feet everyday after work for a month to move which made the tear worse. Then I got misdiagnosed by my doctor who ordered no testing.. I was in agony until I found your website.
I ordered the plantar inferno wrap and have used it religiously every morning and evening and noticed a gradual improvement immediately. It also feels nice and toasty on my foot. I did finally go to the podiatrist and was in a CAM Boot for 10 weeks, along with my inferno wrap use. I know that the inferno wrap works because I felt no improvement until I started using it. I highly recommend this product for anyone suffering from plantar fascia pain or injury.
I would say I am about 80% healed and continue to use this great product--and my physical therapist approves and has encouraged me to continue to use the product.

Freezie + Inferno Wrap® - The Best Home Treatment Combination for a Fast Recovery!
When treating your plantar fasciitis and foot pain with hot and cold treatments it's important to get the temperature right. Some gels can freeze and cause ice burn if left on the skin for too long. Other gels simply don't give you the cold temperature you need to help with pain and swelling. As for heat, regular heat waves are only absorbed into the top layer of skin providing little to no effect to healing internally.
To heal fast we need the right temperature at the right time.
This is even more important for plantar fascia/foot injuries because our feet are sensitive and many people like hot OR cold but not both. Just because you don't like the feeling of one or the other doesn't mean that you shouldn't use it. To get maximum healing of your plantar fascia tissue you need to combine both hot and cold temperature treatments.
Combined therapy with both the Plantar/Spur Freezie Wrap® and Inferno Wrap® will give you the greatest chance for a full, complete recovery.
When to use Cold Compression
Plantar/Spur Freezie Wrap®:
- 24 to 72 hours after your initial injury or when you first notice pain and swelling in your foot to stop cellular damage, relieve pain, and decrease swelling.
- After exercise, workouts or activity of any kind to prevent re-injury to your plantar fascia.
- Before and after surgery during rehabilitation to control pre and post-surgery pain and swelling.
- Anytime you feel your foot has been over-extended, over-worked, twisted, strained or sprained causing pain and swelling.
- Anytime you have swelling, sharp throbbing pain or inflammation in your foot.
- Any other situation where you need to draw the pain and inflammation out of your foot.
Proprietary Technology For The Best Therapy Available!
While you are treating your injury with your Inferno Wrap™, the increase in blood flow will also whisk away inflammation. As it does, the elastic nature of the neoprene wrap gently compresses the area to prevent the inflammation from returning.
After you are done your treatment, you can leave your wrap on to help prevent the return of swelling. The cord easily disconnects right at the wrap so you can get up and move freely while still wearing it. Obviously, to get the blood flow stimulation therapy™, the unit needs to be connected and turned on, but after (or before) your treatment you can wear your wrap for gentle compression and a bit of support for the injured area which generally makes you feel better.
When you are using it, the Energy Web™ stimulates all the tissue beneath it evenly. The parts of your body that are healthy will rapidly respond with increased blood flow and there will be little sensation in that area. A warming sensation will be sensed in areas that are injured because the injury and the inflammation can be restricting circulation.
The effects of the stimulating energy waves build up in that area and your body responds with increased blood flow. Over the course of an application you will actually notice a decrease in the sensation because your body is responding to the treatment - the blood is starting to flow.
As your body continues to heal from treatment to treatment you will also notice a decrease in the sensation because your body is healing and responding more efficiently to the stimulation. So, not only do you heal, but with every treatment you can feel the difference - you can tell your injury is getting better.
Comfortable, Effective and Easy To Use
Inferno Wraps are very comfortable to wear. The shell is made of soft pliable neoprene with a soft plush surface. The inside has a breathable nylon lining. The edges are soft and sewn flush to not abraise your skin. The energy web within is also flexible like cloth so the entire unit conforms to your body.
Inferno Wraps™ are cut and sewn specifically to fit each part of the body so each one fits perfectly. They come with broad straps with velcro closures so they are very easy to put on and take off.
The cord can be unplugged right at the wrap so you can leave the wrap on as a compression support without having the cord dangling as you move about.
It is so easy to plug and un-plug you can stop and start your treatments with ease. You can wear your wrap over or under clothing and it is comfortable enough to wear all day long.
